Taking place from January 7 to 12, 2013, this 6 day/5 night luxury cruise aboard the expedition ship Clipper Premium offers a truly unmatched opportunity to embark on the voyage of a lifetime and explore the Amazon Rainforest, visit the homes of river settlers, learn about the indigenous flora and fauna, and much more.
According to Yolanta Barnes, Sights and Soul Travels, LLC's founder, "This visit to the Amazon rainforest will take place in a small group. Larger groups scare away wildlife and dilute contact with the guides. This journey will venture into pristine rainforest, far away from settlement and is guided by skilled naturalists who will help the group spot wildlife and offer an informed narrative on the sights and sounds around them." Ms. Barnes adds that this is a 100% low impact, green tour designed to benefit the local population by providing income in wages and material.
The Amazon Expedition Cruise includes the following:
- 6 days/5 nights on the luxury Amazon expedition ship Clipper Premium;
- Private airport transfers;
- Meals prepared on board by the Clipper chefs using local ingredients (5 breakfasts, 5 lunches, 5 dinners);
- Several daily naturalist guided trips to explore the rainforest both in canoes and on foot;
- Daily informal talks, each featuring a different topic related to the Amazon: plants, animals, people of the Amazon and their beliefs, food, preservation efforts, etc.;
- Visits to local settlements to meet the native people and the settlers
